Casual beach wedding dresses come in various materials. It is better to avoid heavier materials such as brocade, velvet and heavy silks. You may opt for lighter, flowing fabrics draping well. They are also less prone to wrinkling. Here are some fabrics that work well for casual beach wedding dresses; crepe, charmeuse, duchesse satin, damask, chiffon, batiste and illusion nets.
Crepe is a thin delicate fabric with a creased or crinkled appearance. Duchesse satin is a light blend of rayon and silk; a great alternative to heavier satins. Damask is woven fabric that has the look of brocade without the weight. While chiffon, batiste and illusion nets are light fabrics that can be layered for very feminine looks. Whatever material you choose for your casual beach wedding dresses, it should be breathable, have a texture you like, and be comfortable enough that you can relax in it during your wedding and reception.
